Learn Easily and Efficiently

Follow our highly intuitive, patent-pending order of characters and words that only unlocks content perfectly suited to your level. Then, use the powerful mnemonic techniques of memory athletes to learn with a fraction of the usual effort and time investment.

Develop Deep Authentic Proficiency in Chinese

With the Mandarin Blueprint Method, you won’t just ‘get by,’ in Chinese. You will gain a deep understanding from the bottom up. By following our easy, step-by-step curriculum you will develop a solid foundation of reading and listening, which will allow you to become fluent much faster overall.

Have FUN

Go entirely at your own pace, make friends with a warm and supportive community of fellow learners, and have a blast all the way to literacy and fluency, with two expert coaches guiding you every step of the way.

What’s Inside

There are 5 unique phases within this first major section of The Mandarin Blueprint Method. Each phase focuses on a key element of Mandarin and builds seamlessly upon one another in a linear, unified learning experience all the way to proficiency.

Phase 1: Components & Characters

Using our patent-pending mnemonic visualization system “The Hanzi Movie Method” based on the proven techniques of memory athletes, you’ll learn how to read, write and pronounce any Chinese character in a matter of seconds.

Phase 2: Vocabulary

As you speed-learn characters, you will “unlock” new words more and more often. As these new words become available, we guide you on how to acquire them quickly and easily by creating connections to them drawn from your personal memory banks.

You’ll be able to learn 100+ words a day.

Phase 3: Simple Grammar

After you’ve built up a foundation of Chinese words, we will show you carefully crafted sentences that almost exclusively contain characters and words you have already learned.

By following this step-by-step process, you will be reading and understanding Chinese in a matter of hours!

Phase 4: Graded Reading

Now things really start to get fun! On top of sentences, you’ll start unlocking entire paragraphs filled with conversations and opinions, all of which you’ll be able to read and understand without help!

This deeper, more engaging context makes learning grammar an enjoyable and natural process, instead of a mind-numbing slog through a series of textbooks.

Phase 5: Stories

In this final phase, we’ll start introducing popular stories created by our native Chinese writers, expertly designed using words and characters you have already learned.

By reading and listening to all of this content daily, you’ll find your Mandarin skills increasing faster than you ever thought possible!
